Property Value

Value Description
<None> There is no text delimiter for the field.
<"> Double straight quotes.
<NewLine> Any combination of CR and LF characters.
<CR/LF> CR followed by LF.
<CR> CR alone.
<LF> LF alone.
<TAB> Tabulator alone.


The default value is " (double straight quotes).

You can set the field delimiter in C/AL code so that the XMLport can import and export records with different delimiters. For example, if your XMLport must import from a file or stream where one record uses commas and another uses an empty string, you can change the field delimiter property at run time.
